A must have for any absintheur, this brouilleur (mixer in French) is another way of adding water and sugar to a traditional absinthe. Sometimes referred to as the Cusenier "Auto Verseur" or see-saw, this piece is for a single serving.
To use, first pour one dose (30ml) of absinthe into an absinthe glass, then place an absinthe spoon atop the glass and a sugar cube on the spoon. The balancier then then situated on top of the glass and over the spoon and sugar cube. Ice and water are added inside the dripper. The water begins to slowly drip through a small hole located at the bottom of the dripper. Each droplet falls onto the lever which creates a see-saw motion dispensing the water onto the sugar cube and the sugar water drips into the glass of absinthe. Remove and enjoy!
